Located in southeast Denver, Yale Avenue meets Interstate 25 in between two of the major traffic arteries in Denver: Colorado Boulevard, the most busy street in Denver, and Hampden Avenue, which is also U.S. Route 285. It is a convenient exit for people who want to stay in between downtown Denver and the Tech Center and is also a good location for people flying into Denver International Airport who don't want to stay downtown.
